Dahi vada

Dahi vada(Dahi means yogurt),it is an easy and fast way to make an indian snack if you already have the split black lentils(skinless)soaked .
South india has a variety of snacks called vada and dahi vada,is one of them which is also called medu vada(also tastes good without soking in yogurt).

Ingredients required for dahi vada are
  1. Urad dal(black lentils)soaked in water for more than 3 hrs.
  2. 1/2 chopped onion.
  3. 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds.
  4. salt to taste.
  5. 1 tablespoon of curry leaves.
  6. 1 tsp of crushed black pepper.

  • make a paste of urad dal with almost no water.
  • beat the flour very well with your hand untill you see the flour is very fluffy and light when droped a little in waterand floats.
  • then mix the remaining ingredients into it .
  • Take olive oil in a deep pan and heat it in a medium flame.
  • take the flour with wetted hands and make a ball (about 2 tblsp) ,pierce a hole with youthumb in it.
  • add it to the hot oil and turn them over and cook until golden brown, or you feel they are cooked inside.
  • drain them well on a tissue paper to absorb the oil .
Now you have the vada ready to make Dahi vada.
If you don't prefer to make the Dahi vada out of this(since many of you dont like yogurt), you can have it as it is.As a snack with your tea.

If you want to know how to turn it into Dahi vada,then you just have to make a mixture of yogurt with some ingredients and add it to the above vada.
Please,keep visiting my blog ,and I shall let you know the procedure for that in my upcoming blogs .
This vada can also be a compliment with the mint leaves sauce that i showed in my previous blogs.
